      If I already submitted a rebate this year can I do another one? I think I did the rebate back in May or June but I don’t know if this is a different offer from the previous rebate. 

      • Michelle B.

        I don’t think so. I believe I also did this same rebate a couple of months ago, and as I recall it’s one rebate per household until the rebate itself is over.

        • alwaysashley03

          This rebate has been out since January I think. (Somehow I just found out about it?!) So, it’s probably the same one that’s one per household. :(

      Just a heads up…I submitted this rebate and science diet denied it saying that the rebate was not valid since I had used a coupon.

        I figured it would be like most rebates where you run the risk of them adjusting the rebate price down, but not outright denying it??

      • AshleyAshley

         The fine print on the rebate form says you cant combine it with coupons etc, I think that means in the original purchase. So I would not use the manufacturer coupon on the purchase you plan on submitting for the rebate.

        You may be able to use a store coupon at petco or something like that though….

      • Doris

        Yup. They outright denied it. I even called and wrote customer service to complain because I’ve never seen a rebate specify no coupons. They said it was printed on the rebate so there was nothing they could do. We used to buy Science Diet all the time for our dog and now I refuse to ever buy that kind of dog food again.

    • fl

      My Science Diet rebate was denied also when I used a coupon on the Try Me Free  offer……..

    • Gellins

      Do you have to purchase it at Petco?  I didn’t see anything on the form saying that, but I may have missed it. The reason I am asking is that there isn’t one anywhere near me.

      • Ellensworld

        I was wondering about that too.

      • Pats

        No, it doesn’t have to be Petco.  They are advertising the rebate to bring customers in to buy the product from them.

    • Missyba

      I just called the 1-866-315-2202 number at the bottom of the rebate offer page and the lady told me for this “particular” promotion coupons can be used…..

    • Missyba

      Also, does anyone know if PetSmart takes coupons?

      • MeMe

        Yes .. but it’s very limited.

    • MeMe

      Don’t USE A COUPON … they will deny it!

      • MeMe

        It says on the form …. CANNOT BE COMBINED with a manufacturer coupon!

    • Rose_lunsford

      Bummer.I did this one already:(
      Any other great deals? We NEED dog food right now…

    • Judy Omalley

      The ad in Red Plum stated a Free can in addition to the rebate offer at Petco.com/ny.  I was unable to access this site.  Any tips how to get the printable coupon for that.  I got the rebate form.
